'No Action Needed' is a decision that you can make if there's nothing to do with a first post. Usually there is; you can upvote or downvote, add a comment, upvote and existing comment, (suggest an) edit or flag the question.

New users aren't able to post images (to prevent spam or abusive material) and their posts often end up containing links to an image: some text here (source code: [some text here](https://i.stack.imgur.com/99gX9.png)) bare links to an image page like this: https://imgur.com/a/bDrTcpm The first case is easy to solve: just put a ! in front of the opening ...

That particular comment is automatically generated by the system through the Low Quality Posts review queue. I'm not sure if there is a list of these (so you can copy them) but you can see all options here: Nowadays, the comments have some links in them, but the text hasn't changed significantly over the years. Other interesting links: Repository of ...

Review audits are frequently intentionally tricky and weird. It's a common practice on the Stack Exchange network designed to teach the reviewer to stop, look and listen. It's not unusual at Stack Overflow to find audit questions in the close vote review that have an accepted self-answer posted by the author of the question. My first instinct would be to ...

Those comments are only generated in the Low Quality Posts review queue, and automatically (you can choose from a list of half a dozen standard comments, or choose to leave no comment at all). You get access to that queue at 2,000 reputation. I agree that these comments can be useful from the First Posts (or Late Answers) queue as well; that's why I use the ...

According to https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/158678/280883 Here are the full details on how the ban works. Most of the steps take into account the length of any previous review bans you've faced, including manual bans imposed by a moderator: If you fail three audits within a (rolling) 30-day period, you will be banned for 2 days if you have no ...

There's one way this can happen quite by accident. If you go /posts/<id>/edit (e.g., https://meta.askubuntu.com/posts/19090/edit for this question), while an editing is pending, (a) the editing window will show the version from the pending edit and (b) if you save the edit there, the pending edit gets rejected, even though its contents were applied. ...

You can view them in your profile: https://askubuntu.com/users/current?tab=activity&sort=suggestions (which should redirect to https://askubuntu.com/users/1082980/sleipnir?tab=activity&sort=suggestions for you). As for cancelling, not currently.

It is by design that one loses 1 reputation when downvoting an answer. I believe this is to discourage competitive (and perhaps frivolous) downvoting. While I would very much like to encourage you to downvote when appropriate regardless of the reputation loss, you may like to know that non-answers posted as answers and other low quality answers are often ...

If what you have to say seems like a good and complete answer to the original question, then it is an answer (others will up- or down-vote it depending upon whether they agree with this assessment). If what you have to say is about the question, or is a relevant detail that could be part of an answer, then it is a comment (e.g. the observation that *.SE is ...

Read the tour as you were linked. It answers all these questions you've stated. As for converting answer to comment, that's a task that only moderators have teh button for so you can custom-flag your own post asking it to be converted to a comment and a moderator will eventually get to it. You will be able to post comments once you get 50 reputation, so ...
